Every year, millions of people across the United States seek medical attention from providers. While doctors, nurses, and other professionals are required to undergo rigorous training and testing, the sad truth is that mistakes can still happen in high-stakes situations.
For those harmed by medical malpractice, the consequences can be long-lasting and devastating. Thankfully, you don’t have to face these challenges alone.
Ali Awad of the CEO Lawyer Personal Injury Law Firm, is here to advocate on your behalf. If you were harmed by a doctor, nurse, clinician, or other medical practitioner, you may be entitled to compensation.
Even if the harm came as the result of an honest mistake, accidents in a medical setting can leave people permanently disabled or in chronic pain. Therefore, you should consult with an experienced attorney to explore your options.
We work on a contingency basis, which means that we won’t receive any compensation unless you do. With this in mind, schedule your free, no-obligation consultation by calling (833) 254-2923 or contacting us online
If you’re experiencing unusual symptoms or pain after a medical procedure, you may be unsure about where to turn. After all, it’s understandable to assume that your care team has the answers.
Likewise, you may find your health degrading rather than improving after seeking a diagnosis and treatment.
Unfortunately, there are cases where someone makes a mistake or doesn’t catch an issue in a timely manner. Even worse, some people choose to conceal these mistakes instead of being forthright about what happened.
Whether providers are honest or deceitful about the events that led to your current state, this doesn’t change the fact that you’re the victim. You deserve an advocate who can assist you in the following ways:
If you’ve worked for days, months, or even years to get the attention of your doctor, medical team, or insurance company, you understand how tiring and frustrating the process can be.
These professionals may act dismissively or stop answering your calls altogether. Or, they may require you to work through the hospital or state’s complaint system – a lengthy process that could require months of work and all kinds of documentation.
Naturally, a doctor or hospital that ignores your concerns is upsetting. A medical malpractice attorney will listen to your story from start to finish, ask the right questions, and ascertain the best path forward to seek justice and compensation.
You may know that you’ve been harmed by a provider’s negligence, but proving what happened is an entirely different challenge. This is especially true because the care provider or hospital will retain their own attorney.
A savvy attorney can quickly tear down a case that isn’t built on a strong foundation. Therefore, It’s in your best interest to have an experienced medical malpractice attorney on your side.
An attorney builds a case on your behalf that’s rooted in state and federal laws and built on legal precedent; further, an attorney knows how to navigate the court system. You’re less likely to get hung up due to improperly filed paperwork, missed deadlines, or other complicating factors.
Retaining a lawyer shows that you’re serious about advocating for yourself. Doctors, hospitals, or insurance companies may ignore your direct requests for assistance.
However, they can’t ignore legal action; they’ll have to respond or risk facing fines, charges, and other consequences. In the interest of preserving their reputations, these individuals and institutions will be more likely to cooperate and take your claim seriously once an attorney is involved.
Medical malpractice cases are rarely cut-and-dried. If you’ve explored legal remedies on your own and have arrived at dead ends, there’s no need to lose hope.
A good attorney has the resources, knowledge, and experience to know what approaches work with doctors, hospitals, or insurance companies. They’ll help you understand your options, along with the chances of success for each potential approach.
At CEO Lawyer, we don’t win unless you win, but we’re willing to put hours of work into ensuring that happens. Our incentives are aligned, which means that we’ll advocate tirelessly for the compensation you may be entitled to.
You’ll rest assured knowing that your attorney’s success depends solely on the outcome of your case.
Medical malpractice can occur in any clinical setting. What’s key is that the harm inflicted stemmed from a deviation from the proper standards of care.
However, some procedures and situations are more risky than others. Common situations that can lead to malpractice cases are described below.
Improper medication handling, erroneous prescriptions, or poor judgment in suggesting certain medications can lead to serious health problems. Therefore, if your doctor doesn’t take proper care in prescribing medications or if a pharmacist dispenses them improperly, you could have grounds for a medical malpractice case.
Taking the wrong medications (or getting the wrong dosage) can impact your physical and mental well-being. In serious cases, medications can cause significant pain or chronic problems. Be sure to consult with a personal injury attorney if you’ve suffered due to a medication mistake.
Childbirth is a highly common event. Doctors help bring babies into the world every day, and in many cases, the process goes smoothly.
However, childbirth is still a high-risk procedure, and mistakes in the delivery room can lead to serious consequences for both the mother and baby. A doctor may exhibit poor judgment, fail to follow standard protocols or fail to take proper care during the delivery.
All of these mistakes can harm you or your child.
Surgeries are detailed, complex procedures that require focus, skill, and care. Unfortunately, there are cases where surgeons fail their patients by operating on the wrong part of the body, leaving surgical instruments in the body, failing to sterilize their instruments, or putting patients at risk in other ways.
Poor preparation and improper after-care can lead to complications, as well.
If you’re a victim of botched surgery, you may suffer from side effects that haunt you for months or years into the future. Further, you’re likely to have massive medical bills that grow if your condition worsens over time.
Few challenges in life are as frustrating as mysterious symptoms that affect your well-being. Even worse, if a doctor issues a misdiagnosis, you could spend months or years following a treatment plan that doesn’t properly address the underlying problem.
The treatments you’re prescribed could end up doing more than good, as well.
Doctors can misdiagnose all kinds of conditions. Some common ones include:
These are just a few examples of potential misdiagnoses. If you have a complex medical history, unusual symptoms, or issues that don’t seem likely, given your age or lifestyle, you may be at higher risk for receiving a misdiagnosis.
Misdiagnoses can cause thousands of dollars in unnecessary medical bills along with undue pain, stress, and anguish. If you have suffered because of a misdiagnosis, don’t hesitate to contact an attorney.
Doctors are required to uphold the Standard of Care, a set of criteria and guidelines that medical professionals in all capacities must observe. The standard of care leaves some room for interpretation since every case is unique.
Therefore, negligence is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Your doctor may have failed to uphold the standard of care if they:
Medical professionals are held to a high standard since they fulfill such crucial duties. With that in mind, you should report incidents where you believe your doctor has failed to uphold the standard of care.
This protects you as well as others who receive care from the same provider.
